Macromedia to Open Flash Player Source

Thursday January 6th, 2000

Tekhir writes, "Well, Macromedia is open sourcing their Flash player and file format [according to this BeNews story]. It would be interesting to see if this could/should be intergrated into Mozilla. Can you imagine if people started making the UI out of Flash 4. Or better yet borrowing its alpha transparency layer. There are a lot of cool effects that one can do with Flash."

Should Flash be integrated into Mozilla? Or should their tasty, optimized vector-drawing code be cannibalized for the inevitable SVG implementation?

#24 Flash UI available now?

forgot to ask....

I've been using Flash 4 in Mozilla for weeks. Although detection of it doesn't work, everything else is fine, and damn stable..

Wouldn't it be possible to implement a flash based UI now?

thanks for the feedback --Jedbro
